We did it. The wood carving ornaments for this Christmas are all complete!! Yeah us! With less that 3 months to go!
There are 101 ornaments, I have 17 extra blank ones…one is for a new baby who will arrive in September a Great Nephew or Neice…we must wait and see.
I will give some ornaments away here on the blog as it gets closer to Christmas. Suffice it to say, they all started out alike as carvings but as they were painted each one became unique. I painted in batches of 12. Depending on my mood some are a bit wilder/more colorful than others.
I was happy to finish yesterday. We need four more hooks to accompany the carvings. I will pick up small Christmas bags and tissue paper when it comes out in the stores, package them up for giving and for mailing. Seven ornaments were completed, wrapped in Christmas paper and sent home with family that were visiting earlier this month.
Not sure what I will carve next…something in bark most likely. A smaller project. Something relaxing without a deadline.
